Romney: 'Increasingly Likely' More Republicans Will Support Calling Bolton As Witness

Source: Huffington Post

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Monday that it’s “increasingly likely” there will be enough Republicans in the Senate to vote in favor of calling former national security adviser John Bolton as a witness in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.

“I think it’s important for us to hear from John Bolton for us to be able to make an impartial judgment,” Romney told reporters. He also said he had spoken to other GOP senators about the subject, but declined to say whom.

In a surprising development Sunday, The New York Times shared drafts from Bolton’s book outline stating Trump did in fact tie withholding Ukraine aid to the country’s announcement that it would investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Trump denied Bolton’s reported account later that day on Twitter, insisting he “never” told Bolton the Ukraine aid was tied to “investigations into Democrats.”

6. knowing mitten's self serving nature...

he probably weighed the pros and cons and now "leans" toward JOHN BOLTON (yes, his name must be yelled) to testify because it will probably make mittens money somehow.

9. I don't join the chorus dismissing this.

I still think there are enough Republican Senators not up for reelection this year who want to get trump’sboot of their necks.
